Learn Basic Programming

Before you can start studying a programming language you’ll need to know some basics first. Programming contains three basic elements: input, output, and algorithm. A program almost always relies on some sort of input. The majority of the time, the input is provided from a user, or from another program. On the other hand, there is always an output from a program. The output is the final result of the program’s execution. But what holds these elements together? Only algorithm can. Which in this case, is your job to create.

You may have asked yourself what programming language should I learn (C++, C#, Java, JavaScript, HTML…)? The answer is pretty obvious, only after translated into basic English. Below I’ve made a list of areas you want to learn to program in and links to tutorials surrounding those subjects.

Apple Confession App Approved by Roman Catholic Church

As many people out there, I have found this very different. A confession app approved by the pope himself. But not surprising. Since everything is going digital, why not religion? Therefore the real question is will it work? In my opinion it would work for the younger generation and not for the older. The reason is that the older generations would rather keep it the way they grew up and they wouldn’t want to change a thing. But that’s just speculation. Whats your opinion?

Here is a link to a short article about the app.

Tea. One of the best.

Tea. The dried and prepared leaves of a Camellia sinensis, or more commonly known as a shrub, from which at times somewhat bitter, is an aromatic beverage which is prepared by infusion of hot water. That was the most primitive explanation of the meaning of tea. In today’s world tea has evolved so much that it has become a person’s hobby to indulge in its warmth, smell, and taste. But some people have decided to take a step forward and have sorted out the good tea from the bad tea. One of those people was named Larissa Simontov. She has brought to us currently over twelve different types of imported teas. All of the teas are as organic as they can possibly get and their containers are only environmentally friendly and 100% natural. They are also all imported and are hand packed. I have tasted her teas and I would like to discuss them with you. However, we need to get some facts straight before we begin. The most important fact you should know about tea is that it comes from one plant. So any herbal, fruit, or flower “teas” are not really teas at all. Those “teas” are called infusers and they may enhance the flavour but they do not have the taste of the original tea. Tea is divided into three different categories: black, green, and oolong. Each category has a unique and different taste so before you decide on your favourite tea make sure you’ve tried them all. The taste of any tea will always taste differently. This is because tea always changes its taste depending on the climate, area of origins, atmosphere, and weather. So even if you purchase the same tea from a different place or even a different harvest it will always taste a little different. A third very important fact is that the way you serve the tea can really affect the taste of it. Steel, iron, plastic, and nylon bring out a hint of the materials taste into your tea. That may be very harmful to you in the long term. Tea bags that are made out of nylon or plastic will infuse their chemicals into your tea. Therefore you can develop illnesses from those chemicals. The best way to serve your tea is by putting the tea leaves on a bamboo canister and then infusing it with boiling water. Now that we have got those facts straightened out I will discuss my experience drinking some of her teas and will hopefully in result introduce you to some very unique tastes. First of all, usually black teas are stronger than green and oolong teas. While I was tasting the black teas I also found out that they are bitter depending on their region of growth. It was easier to taste that then in the other teas. I ended up choosing the Vithanakande tea as my overall favourite. For the green teas I noticed that they all were very light but had some overall pleasant bitterness. My favourite green tea ended up being the Jasmine Pearl. Moving on to the oolong teas that were from china, I particularly noted that they were very light in colour. Though I couldn’t end up choosing on a favourite. After my journey tasting her teas I asked her on which of all her teas did she prefer. The Sir Lanka tea she answered. From that day on I have loved the taste of tea particularly hers.

As you probably of heard Japan’s earthquake/tsunami impacted Japan dramatically. For people in other areas of the world experienced minor or none discomfort in their daily lives. But let’s not forget Japan is one of the worlds leading manufacturers. So brands like apple and other major commercial companies will start experiencing delays in shipments of parts from Japan. So more particularly Apple’s Ipad 2 will experience delays in their shipment of glass for the Ipad. This means that worldwide the production of the Ipad 2 would be less and then in and in result consumers would have to wait longer in line ups for the Ipad 2.

Time to Move Your Clock One Hour Forward, Again (Daylight Saving Time)

As I said in the title, today your clock should be an hour ahead because of Daylight Saving Time. But do you know why we even have Day Light Saving Time? Well we have it for a reason. Think about it. Daylight Saving Time. Your saving daylight with time. That’s all to it. When the majority of the world wakes up they end up leaving the house in the morning when the sun is already shining. Now by waking up an hour earlier the world saves energy because we get more sunlight in the day and in hot places Daylight Saving Time saves energy used from turning on the fan or some other cooling system. Same thing with cold places. You end up turning the heat lower when its sunny so you would be also saving lots of energy. But some places in the world don’t use Daylight Saving Time because it wouldn’t save them energy because they already wake up before the sun is shinning or for other reasons. Just look at the map and you will see places that don’t use Daylight Saving Time or places that used too. If you want to read more click the article below.
